golden triangle tour india

The Golden Triangle tour India is known as such thanks to being the most well-trodden of all India’s tourism paths, but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing left to see. On the contrary, in fact I believe that Delhi, Agra and Jaipur still have plenty to offer the curious explorer, and that’s just as true of the many stops along the way.

Should you be dedicating a week to the Golden Triangle, I’m happy to tell you that you’ll find a fascinating new discovery every day and still be left curious about what else you missed. Take a look at some of my favourite places in Golden Triangle Tour India.


Many Golden Triangle tours begin in vibrant Delhi. Dedicating a couple of days to the capital comes highly recommended as there’s plenty to see. The immense Jama Masjid, with its striking red and white stone, is an incredible feat. Beyond, look to the Red Fort, Old Fort Delhi for a glimpse of the Mughals of the city’s past.

Old Delhi

Spend your second day in the capital digging a little deeper. You can lose many hours to the bustling Chandni Chowk, a market that’s stood in the old quarter of the city for generations. Here, the scent of spices, the roar of hagglers and the promise of fabrics, gadgets, bargains and food await the bold. Picnic in the Lodhi Gardens to unwind after these adventures.

Fatehpur Sikri

I’ve written before about this beautiful ghost town, and I can’t recommend it enough. Left in its own idyllic freedom by Emperor Akbar, this place was lived in for just 14 years before he moved his capital elsewhere. His loss is our gain, and it stands as a UNESCO World Heritage Site today.


This city was made by Shah Jahan’s passion. Even after his imprisonment in Agra Fort, a stunning piece of architecture in its own right, it was the Taj Mahal that put India’s beauty into the eyes of the world. One of the Seven Wonders of the World, it has to be seen to be believed. Yet You can find much more information about Agra and the Taj Mahal online.


Stunning Jaipur is worth the drive. The Jantar Mantar museum is a testament to science and knowledge, with an incredibly large sundial. Yet the city palace, whose gardens house relief art representing the four seasons, is a masterpiece of Mughal architecture. The iconic Hawa Mahal building, with its countless little windows, deserves your time too.

Amber Fort

This incredible structure still shines with much of its original artwork and reflective optic effects. The stunning fortress mixes red and white stone marble for a striking impact to the senses, and for an added regal touch you can ride to its gates by elephant.


The history behind this precious place is reason enough to visit, but many of the towering structures here defy logic. Therefore, even though this is a resting place for countless Mughal tombs, scientists to this day are baffled as to how the iron pillar – built over 2,000 years ago – was created. Mehrauli will then lead you back to Delhi proper, completing your journey and, I’m sure, giving you plenty of food for thought.
